Grid Iron Mind Games ...

The classic sport guessing game continues some forty years later. Do you smell a blitz? (C or H defense) and call a #3 Sneak or do you throw into the dreaded 17-I and watch the ball go sailing in the opposite direction? FBS is a simple game to learn. If you know anything about football, you can be playing in minutes. Rookies often give experienced players fits with their unexpected play calling and upsets are not uncommon. As a 3-time champ, I prefer playing other experienced players who tend to be more predictable than rookies. Although veteran players tend to do better in the long haul ... witness the four members of our football league who took the top four spots last year.

Players have a choice of three offensive charts. Ball Control favors the run and short pass to avoid turnovers. Aerial is for those who want a high octane offense and are not afraid of turnovers. Pro style is a mix between the two. Each offense has its basic plays, you just have to figure them out. (20 sided dice are optional and have been used with little success.) You can play wide open, shun punting and field goals, or never risk a turnover unless you have to. Players may use any edition of offensive charts that are MUTUALLY agreed on. Default charts are those of the last edition.

The tournament will be in two heats so that if I lose the first night to some lucky stiff (err, worthy opponent), I can play again. The two Heat winners will meet for the Super Bowl. The later games tend to use creative scheduling to accomodate players at their convenience and allow entry into other events.
